"Dear Dr. Robben, Linda et al, I have recovered very nicely from my laser treatment. I just wanted to send you a note and thank you again for your time and care in June and over the years. It is a little embarrassing to want to look better, but you make me feel positive about it. With my 60th birthday this Tuesday, I feel good."
"I have been coming to this location for 9 years now. As my hormones changed and my hair growth increased, it was treated with the utmost care and attention. I actually commute 2.5hours this location as I moved since I started my treatment, bc that's how much I trust Mind Your Skin. Very effective results. Highly recommend!!"- SJ, Google Reviews, Summer 2018

A Solution to Relax Frown Lines in Philadelphia and Havertown
Youthful skin tends to “bounce back” to a smooth, unlined state, even after making the most severe expressions. Over time, however, aging skin begins to show the signs of a lifetime of scowls and squints. Glabellar lines, better known as “frown lines” develop between the eyebrows. But with Jeuveau™ at the Philadelphia-and Havertown-based Mind Your Skin, the muscles responsible for these visible lines can relax. Reduced action equals reduced wrinkles.
Norbertus Robben, MD, administers the Jeuveau™ treatments at Mind Your Skin. He draws on his considerable experience specializing in minimally invasive and noninvasive cosmetic procedures, including 14 years of other neuromodulator treatments, such as BOTOX®, to give his patients the best results possible in each session.
Jeuveau™ is in a category of injectable cosmetic treatments known as “neuromodulators.” This group also includes BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®.
All these neuromodulators are highly purified forms of Botulinum toxin. They are carefully injected into target muscles, where they block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. During this time, muscle contractions are diminished—even when the surrounding muscles continue to operate normally.
The FDA approved Jeuveau™ specifically for use on frown lines. Patients who choose this injectable from the Mind Your Skin menu of services will find that they can continue to make a full range of expressions and not have a “frozen look.”
What is a Jeuveau™ Session Like?
Each treatment begins with a complimentary consultation that allows Dr. Robben to get to know you and your cosmetic goals. Together, you will determine how best to move forward.
The Jeuveau™ session itself will last about 10 to 15 minutes, with Dr. Robben making the necessary injections with both care and efficiency. Each injection will cause a sensation that can be likened to a small “pinch” to the skin.
Sometimes in the hours after a session, there can be some minor swelling, redness or bruising, or minimal discomfort at the injection site. No special action is required, as these effects will fade on their own. Dr. Robben can discuss other possible side effects during your consultation.
How Long Do Jeuveau™ Results Last?
The frown-smoothing effect of Jeuveau™ can be expected to come in within up to 10 days and last for several months. Typical muscle activity will begin to return to the area over time, allowing the unwanted frown lines to become increasingly visible again, so periodic re-treatment is needed to maintain the desired outcomes.
Patients who would like to use Jeuveau™ as a long-term solution to signs of aging may consider Dr. Robben’s Maintenance Program. Roughly three treatments a year are likely sufficient for maintaining the desired skin-smoothing results.
What Can Complement Jeuveau™?
Aside from neuromodulators to relax frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles, Mind Your Skin also offers numerous dermal fillers for adding volume and addressing static wrinkles. These are the lines that appear as skin ages, but are not associated with direct muscle activity. When combined, the two types of injectables can give the entire face a more youthful look, which is ideal for patients who have more than one area where signs of aging are present.
Dr. Norbertus Robben and the Mind Your Skin team offer BOTOX®, Jeuveau™, Dysport™, Xeomin®, Juvederm® and other dermal fillers, Kybella®, laser hair reduction, IPL, laser skin tightening, resurfacing, and rejuvenation; laser vein treatments; vaginal rejuvenation; UltraShape®; VelaShape-III®, chemical peels; microdermabrasion; microneedling; and more for the Havertown and Philadelphia areas.
